As a professional: I am a life long software engineer -- I started programming when I was 12 years old, and haven't stopped. I've worked for technology companies my entire career.
School wise, I studied computer science at Columbia University, both undergraduate and graduate.
When parenting allows free time, my hobbies include: teaching kids how to program computers (including teaching my own kids), playing and teaching soccer, reading, playing video games.
I consider myself a neat person: I like fixing things, leaving the playground cleaner than I found it (this is one of our mottos both at home and at the office). As a guest, I strive to do the same.
